We are the housing group. The topic that we decided on for our remix is homelessness. In our remix we highlighted what really causes homelessness. We also address the stereotypes and misconceptions people have. We hope that after watching our remix you all will have a better understanding and a newfound respect for those that are homeless.
Our group’s topic was obesity and we decided to list some knowledge of obesity and how it is becoming more and more prevalent in a modern society like America. We also showed some possible solutions to the obesity epidemic and reasons why it occurred in the first place. All footage use in the video complies with fair use and copyright limitations.
In our video, we wanted to do something that would raise awareness about the inequalities in law enforcement with minorities. We shared multiple examples to show the unfairness minorities receive in the system. Hopefully when people watch this, they will see what is happening and hopefully will create change for the better in our society.
Here are some remixes that student groups gave me permission to share (and that are publicly available on YouTube). The later examples provide the students’ paragraphs of introduction:
Gender Bias in the Workplace
Our group, composed of four women, worked together to show the differences in how men and women are treated while working. This video uses Disney clips, news articles, and very powerful facts to show gender inequality in the workplace. Learning from the past will help us strive for a better future, and thats what needs to happen.
Racism in the Media
In our video remix we show racism in the media. We show clips of racist acts or saying caught in the news. It is a concerning and growing issue today. As technology has advanced this issue has become more public. We want people to be aware of this problem and make sure the people around us do not make the same mistake as the people in these videos. Everyone is equally a person, no matter their skin color or what they believe in.
Blue Lives Matter
Our video is about the controversy about Blue Lives Matter. We show a series of videos of police officers getting shot and how quickly these situations can happen. We honor the fallen officers in providing images of them that can be found on Fallen Officer Memorial Fund website. Because this is such a controversal topic, we are more showing the situations that caused Blue Lives Matter to form and go public versus arguing this is the correct side to be on. ENJOY 🙂
